This cosy corner pub was Young’s first ever, opened in 1832. Now, under revamped Young’s management and with a new chef and fresh look, it exudes culinary confidence and a homely, rustic feel with its roaring fire, deep leather sofas and dark oak tables and floors.
It deftly juggles drinking and dining with a couple of Young’s ales, a guest ale and a row of lager fonts (Peroni, Grolsch Blonde, Estrella Damm), and more than a dozen wines available by the glass.
The hearty, jingoistic cooking unashamedly caters for meat-lovers. Starters include wild boar, venison and rabbit terrine on toast; mains might include spatchcocked quail or the house speciality, mussels and chips; roasts are served all day Sunday. The conservatory and sizeable garden come into play in summer, when there are regular barbecues.
